Any ideas for a quiet San Francisco restaurant? For a family event, my mother is taking her three kids and our spouses to a matinee show, after which we will all go to dinner. Since my mother and one of my brothers are kind of hard of hearing, a place where the seven of us could converse easily is important.
Any kind of cuisine will do. Moderately priced and up. Any area from Van Ness east to the Bay would be fine.
Oh yeah, if it's got a view, even better.
